4-30-14 additional charge filed against bomb threat suspect

A Markesan man already charged in connection with a rash of bomb threats in Waupun and several other communities faces a new charge.  Thirty one year old Aaron Schreiber is charged with making a bomb scare in connection with a bomb threat made in Ripon.  Schreiber was scheduled to make his initial Fond du Lac court appearance Tuesday but the appearance will be rescheduled.  He was earlier charged with making a dozen bomb threats in Waupun alone where police chief Dale Heeringa says he’s never seen so many threats made in a relatively short period of time by one person. "Never.  In my 38 years in law enforcement this one was a major disruption for our police department and our community,"  Heeringa told WFDL news.  "We stuck a ton of resources into this thing before we came up with a suspect, interviewed him and got an admission from him."   Heeringa says one of the bomb threats was made at Waupun Memorial Hospital.  
Heeringa says it appeared that Schreiber was feeding off the attention that his actions received and the chief says every threat had to be taken seriously.
